Although it looks very drab and down at heel from the outside, its better inside although a bit dated. The food however is very good and so is the choice of real ale. It is standard pub fare but very nicely cooked

We were in need of good quality food and nice clean facilities and we got both of these requirements, along with a cracking host! Well worth a visit, especially if you are passing on a canal holiday! - You won't be disappointed .
